Sammi made these wonderful treats in Activity Days! Joy dancing with her Daddy
Jessi was Student of the Week again! :)
This year I never bought Girl Scout cookies. Two problems for me – a. The corporate policies are getting out of control and b. the cost! $3.50 for a few cookies? So I made these. They are my favs – Samoas! YUM!
The Young Women had a Garage Sale to raise money for Girl’s Camp. It was at our house, so now one of my neighbors hates me, but the girls raised $1050! While it might look like the girls are shopping – they worked. And my Sammi? She is a salesman! We would open a box of random treasures – and she would sell it! Amazing.
Later that night was the General YW Broadcast. Last year I had plead and plead with the doctors to let us go home from the hospital so Becca and I could go together. Last year’s picture, then 2010: It was absolutely wonderful, by the way. I loved the messages. And cried through “How Firm A Foundation.”

On Tuesday night Jason and I went out for his birthday. We both had lobster – it was super yummy!
Jason hates it when people write on his car or draw attention to him. So we went to WalMart and bought those paint pens and wrote on his car while he was at work. We were so worried that we were going to get caught by the security people! It was fun! He called and told us we were “ornery!” :) But he felt loved!
Jason came home and we all went out for lunch – also very yummy! Sammi had a wonderful time. (And yes, he washed the car before he went back to work :) )
Of course for his cake he chose Strawberry Shortcake. He had a great big double helping – it was so delicious!
My big present to Jason this year was his trip to Iowa. I’ll get him to post about it soon!

Oft times He worketh sorrow
and I within my heart
Forget He sees the pattern
While I see only the part.
The dark threads were as needful
In the weaver's skilful hand,
As the threads of gold and silver,
In the pattern He had planned.
Not till the room is silent,
And the shuttle ceases to fly,
Shall God unroll the canvas,
And explain the reason why.
Isn’t this wonderful? I remember thinking when I was younger that if I was righteous, then I would always be blessed and nothing truly bad would ever happen in my life. What was I thinking? Have you ever looked at the lives of the great prophets or of great men and women of history? They lived through many trials and learned great lessons from them. As I was reading from the Ensign this morning, I was thinking of trials. How can I hope to live next door to Moses’s mother or down the street from President Hinckley one day if I can’t be faithful in my here and now, in every thing? Hopefully, I will. Hopefully, I can.
Monday – Galveston (earned it’s own post)
Removing Kris’s wisdom teeth stitches – we had the equipment from Bella and they were driving her crazy! :)
Wednesday – We went to Space Center NASA (also earned it’s own post)
Thursday till Saturday Becca went to Youth Conference. Sounds like it was a blast. Wish I had pictures! She wouldn’t let me get any when she came home to shower after camping for 2 days (wonder why? :) ) But I got these when she was headed out the door for the Sunday Dress part of the event. :)
Other wise it was a lot of playing and pretending :)
Spring is still in full bloom –
Spring does bring it’s ewww side – pollen and lots of it! It’s killing our sweet babe. So hard to breathe with all this pollen in the air. Fortunately, we got a big storm yesterday. I’m hoping that it stripped the air and the trees and we’ll be back to smooth breathing pretty soon!
Friday Jason left for Iowa to visit his parents. That will be it’s own post.
